Dental Designs of White Marsh is a place where we take our dentistry seriously, but not ourselves. Patients can expect us to have the latest technology, clinical excellence, and ethical dentistry second to none. But these goals are met in a fun and friendly environment. We're the office that will play whatever music you want on Alexa (and sing along with you), let you watch a movie during treatment from Netflix, or dance when no one is looking, or maybe even when everyone is looking (or maybe just Dr. Santos >.<)! We laugh, we laugh a lot, because dentistry shouldn't have to be scary. There are warm towels waiting for you at the end of your appointment and the latest yankee candles lit around the office. We like to think that every new patient that steps through our doors is becoming a new member of our family, and we're ready to welcome them in. Our dentistry is done differently.
A bit more specific? Dentistry is first and foremost about the health and well being of the patient. Most people and even dentists don't realize or think that we have the same background that physicians do when we go to dental school. Dentistry is about treating the patient as a whole, looking at their medical history as it relates to their oral care. It is not a drill and fill business, but the other aspect is that, unlike medicine, there are many aspects of dentistry where you have to look at it LIKE a business, which is why we are here working with you guys. We want our patients to know that we are the engineers and architects of the mouth, we do all these things but run the fine balance of being professional but relaxed. Our target audience is the American family. We are primarily based in a suburban area with young families and children to a much older patient base. They are our bread and butter. There are small pockets of "well-to-do" families that we are also trying to entice for cosmetic and implant dentistry. We believe in treating our patients as a whole, and focusing not just on oral health, but physical and mental well-being as well. Health is our number one concern, any cosmetics is always the cherry on top.
Dentistry should be beautiful and inspiring and tell stories that people believe. Our work should tell the stories of our patients, they become part of our stories too. €
